David Jansen hosts The Palace
The Harlem Globetrotters do their Sweet Georgia Brown routine. Edie Adams does a medley of 3 songs. Tim Conway plays a prison warden being interviewed by David Jansen (who can barely keep from bursting into uncontrollable laughter). A singing group whose name I couldn't catch appears, they're from Madagascar. Carl Reiner is straight man to Mel Brooks as Phillip Heinkel, tax expert. It is a very nice example of their improvisational abilities. There are 2 ads for Mennen (baby powder and deodorant) and Vic Damone sings. Finally, The Harlem Globetrotters take on a team composed of: Mel Brooks, Carl Reiner, Tim Conway, Vic Damone and David Jansen. You can imagine the results, or skip the imagination and watch the episode.
Must've been a lot of ads for an hour long show to run only 35 minutes....
